RE: Are you related to Charles and Sophie Wehren
Hi Amber,
Thanks for responding. I am not related to your family. I am helping with the German Colony reunion in Westcliffe, Colorado. My Colonist member was Wilhelm Knuth.

I am trying to locate as many descendants for the Colonist to inform them of the reunion and the Facebook account. So if you know of other descendants, please share the information.

I am one of 2 administrators to the closed Facebook account. Here is the name below:

Wet Mountain Valley 1870 German Colonist Descendants

If you request a membership, it will be approved.

This is where descendants from the Colonist share pictures, historical information, recipes and etc. This would be a great place to share some of your information.

In the 1870 census of Colfax, Colorado on July 2, 1870, Your 3rd great-grandfather was listed as Chas Wesburn.
My direct email is martybetty@live.com

Are you related to Charles and Sophie Wehren
Hello,

Are you related to Charles and Sophie Werhan who settled in the Wet Mountain Valley in 1870?

If so there will be a reunion of the descendants of the Colonist in Westcliffe on October 7th at 11:00 at the Hartbauer RV Park in Westcliffe. '

We have also established a closed Facebook for those who descend from the Colonist.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
Betty Schmidt, descendant of Wilhelm Knuth

Hello Amber,

I'm sorry I wasn't as clear as I meant to be in my message. Your memorials were not in error, only the other two. It was difficult leaving such a long message in this little box instead of an actual email address.

I included your memorials so you could connect Amelia's memorial to Amelia's parents, Capt. Joshua Hadley and Hannah Holmes.

Sorry for the confusion. Hope this clarifies it for you.

Amelia Hadley Livingston has erroneously been posted as the daughter of Thomas Jefferson and Mary Thompson, and the sister of their son, Capt. Joshua Hadley. Thomas and Mary are actually her grandparents, and Joshua and Hannah Harmon are her parents.

Messages are being sent to CB and T'Anna with memorial #ís on all affected individuals.

P.S. Thomas Jefferson's grandfather, Simon Hadley is my 7th great grandfather.

Dr. John Livingston Hadley was one of the largest land holders in Jones Bend. Dr. John was born August 1788 in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the only child of John Hadley and Margaret Livingston. Before moving to the Jones Bend area, John Hadley graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1807 and from the School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania in 1812. He served as a surgeon during the War of 1812. John Livingston Hadley's grandfather, Thomas Hadley was killed by Tories during the Revolutionary War. Thomas moved to Virginia from London Grove MM, Chester, Pennsylvania shortly after his marriage to Mary Thompson in June of 1750. He did not remain in Virginia long. In 1760, he with a partner, John Wilcox, were the first merchants of Cross Creek in Cumberland Co., North Carolina. He represented his district at the Constitutional Convention at Halifax, NC. in November 1776, which enacted a Bill of Rights for the new government. He was elected sheriff of Cumberland Co, NC in 1778, and re-elected in 1781, but was killed before he could serve his last term. Despite being Quakers, Thomas, his sons Joshua and Simon were very active in the American Revolution. All were Captains of Militia. Unlike his father and brothers, John Hadley took no active part in the American Revolution. As a result he became known to the Scotch Tories of North Carolina as "Gentleman John". He was, however, Constable of Cumberland County which rendered him ineligible for military service. John died August, 1817 in Cumberland Co., NC John Livingston Hadley moved to Tennessee some time during 1815 probably with his uncle Joshua, who was a land speculator following his career in the military. On December 6, 1815, John married sixteen year old Amelia Hadley, the daughter of his uncle Joshua. His uncle/father-in-law must have been pleased with this union as he made a very generous gift "for and in consideration of the love and affection I have for sd. John L. Hadley and Amelia Hadley" of 620 acres of land on Rutherford's Creek in Williamson County in 1817. In 1826, John Hadley purchased from Beal Bosley 1,171.75 acres in the area known as Jones Bend for the sum of $8202. John began immediately to build his house which he called Vaucluse, after the valley in France famous for its wine and association with Petrarch. He devoted more time and energy to the management of his plantation than to the practice of his medical profession. He did send the only two sons who reached maturity John Livingston Hadley and Robert Livingston Hadley through medical school. Both attended the University of North Carolina and medical school at the University of Pennsylvania like their father. Dr. John and his wife Amelia had a total of thirteen children, only two of whom lived to maturity.

The children are as follows: Augustus William Hadley b: 23May1817 d: 19Oct1819
John Livingston Hadley b: 30Apr1819 d: 28Aug1893 Margaret Claudia Hadley b: 21Jul1821 d: 15Sep1825 Amelia Hadley b: 17Jan1824 d: 4Apr1840
Clementia Hadley b: 16Feb1825 d: 2Jun1845
Evelina Hadley b: 12Sep1828 d: 11Feb1839

RE: Samuel Bryson #149061986
I appreciate your reply. It makes much more sense than our Samuel having been buried in Pennsylvania since he had left it as a baby. Also, we know he served in the war of 1812 and received a pension from that war, not the Revolutionary war. Once again, thank you.

Samuel Bryson #149061986
This question concerns Samuel Bryson, b. 1753 Lancaster, PA - d. 1835 Wilson, TN. Samuel is my husband's 3gggrandfather. How did you find him buried in Pennsylvania after he had died in Tennessee. Nothing we had found indicated he might have been buried out of state. Some of his children were still living in Tennessee at the time of his death, while others had moved west to Illinois. Any other information you have that you could let us know would be much appreciated.

Howdy, Amber. Not a problem. I can't even remember what I sent to you, but what can't be filled in by me can likely be provided by an army of cousins, more of whom pop up every day thanks to Find A Grave! Wasn't even sure but what you might be one, yourself. So, yes, if you want to send them on, please do so. I'll be happy to watch over them until finding someone even more closely related. My # is 47643935.

And, thank you so much for having done all the hard part! Your efforts are much appreciated.

Thank you for the offer... I did not know Wanda or her family. However I am sure my mother probably did, as Wanda was a Nurse. Mom dedicated over 20 years of Volunteer Service to St. Rose Dominican. I just wanted to leave a little Thank You to Wanda for dedicating her life to helping others. Many jobs are thankless, Nursing is but one. I added you to my friends.
